Better Skills, Better Life
“The greatest distinction between the working poor and other workers is their literacy levels.” A recent study reaffirmed that literacy is very relevant to employment outcomes and gaining full-time employment. Individuals are increasingly aware of the need to improve their skills and demand for our services is high. Although our funders are generous in funding direct program costs, we rely on support from the community to keep these programs running. We invite you to partner with Vita by lending your support to our important mission.
Planned giving allows donors the opportunity to establish charitable trusts and annuities which fulfill their financial goals while providing for the long-term sustainability of Vita Education Services and its mission and programs.
A gift to Vita Education Services Planned Giving Program can be a valuable part of your financial planning. Please consult your estate planning attorney, tax advisor or financial planner to discuss options for including Vita Education Services in your estate plan.
Endowment funds provide a lasting gift. In recognition of the need for sustained revenues for our programs, Vita’s Board of Directors created an Endowment Fund in 2011, which was seeded by the individual contributions of board members. If you are interested in supporting this fund, please contact Vita.
If you are a United Way donor, either in your workplace or as an individual, you can designate Vita Education Services as the recipient of your donation.
You will be contributing to the success of the United Way campaign while helping Vita fulfill its mission of bringing learning to life for Bucks County adults, families and at-risk youth by helping them to develop skills that create opportunities for themselves, their families, and, in turn, the community.
